YKTS 2023 National Entrepreneurship Education Conference is organized in Turku
YKTS National Entrepreneurship Education Conference is aimed at researchers, teachers, and practical operatiors interested in entrepreneurship educcation. The special goal of the YKTS Entrepreneurship Education Conference is to bring research and practice closer together. The conference-style two-day event also offers a great opportunity for young researchers to practice writing and presenting conference papers. YKTS Entrepreneurship Education Conference are organized in cooperation with the YKTS Entrepreneurship Education Research Society.
The theme of the 2023 YKTS Entrepreneurship Education Conference is Critical and reflective perspectives on entrepreneurship education. The purpose is to spark a discussion around the bias of positivity that emphasizes the benefits of entrepreneurship in entrepreneurship education. This has led to the fact that, while educational institutions actively try to promote student entrepreneurship, many important aspects are neglected. For example, is entrepreneurship education implemented without questioning existing didactics and pedagogical solutions? Is entrepreneurship education implemented inclusively? What are the possible unintended or negative learning outcomes of entrepreneurship education? Is an entrepreneurial approach the only possible and right way to act? Is encouraging entrepreneurship ethical considering the polarized incomes of entrepreneurs? Is it feasible to promote entrepreneurship if the business opportunities are not ethically and environmentally sustainable and might cause problems for the community or society?
A warm welcome to Turku!
